 /  DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  kW^W^^-  -$m  '-'_-  i.h<-t'SSe?  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  ���-SSI  :*#|  EIGHTH YEAR.  NELSON:  SATURDAY MORNING AUGUST 11 J900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  .m  DIDN'T LIKE THE LYDDITE  X  Why* Chinese Retreated.  1 * London, August 11.���4:30 a.m.���  The morning jjapers express satisfaction at the latest developments  in China. TJie averago comment is  thab China is now genuinely suing  for peace through Li Hung Chang.  Dispatches printed this morning  give further details of the taking  of Yang Tsun. According to the  Daily Mail's correspondent, the  attack was led by the Americans  and British. The Chinese position  consisted of seven lines of entrenchments. The enemy fell back from  ,.one to another until, driven from  the last line, they-fled toward-Pekin  completely -   demoralized. The  Chinese say they retreated because  the British "poured poison" into  their troops. This refers to the  lyddite, whicli the Chinese experienced for the first time. The correspondent adds that the British  casualties wero 200 nnd the Americans 250, but the latter estimate, it  will be noticed, is four times greater  thin that of general Chaffee's report. '  A St. Petersburg special says the  Chinese minister here, Yang Yu,  has received a telegram announcing  that Li Hung Chang is dangerously  ill aud confined_to his bed, and that  he t-has -been- granted a .month's  leave of absence. ' .  Another St. Petersburg dispatch  asserts that the Russiau general  staff* have been notified that the  Chinese, 12,000 strong,* are moving  -from Hii Nan and Hun Pei to,Pekin  and Tien-Tsin.  The Shang-Hai correspondent of  the Daily News, wiring Thursday,  announced that the Chinese merchants are petitioning the authorities not'to land troops..  - "Washington, August 10.���In the  light of the latest dispatch from  minister Conger, received "by the  .state 'department through minister  Wu today, the attitude of ' the a'd-  - ministration is that there is one  thing to be done in the present circumstances, namely to press on to  the,relief of the beseiged garrison  at Pekin. This will be made'known  after extended.communications be-.  tf'een Washington and the president at Canton. ' .'The Conger dispatch was accepted as showing conclusive justification for the,imperative demand of the United States  sent to the Chinese government on  ��� Wednesday night insisting that the*  imperial troops cooperate with the  international forces in the rescueof  ministers, and until this condition,  as well as that of the cessation of  the bombardment, is fully conceded  by China, there is no other course  open but to press steadily onward  in the mission of relief.  The Conger dispatch was received  -before daylight at the Chinese legation and as soon as the official day  opened, minister Wu presented it  to acting seoretary .McAdo at the  state department. ��� Ib was in the  American cipher and was found to  be an identical note with that._ of  ^the~bther ministers at Pekin (that  of the French minister, M. Pichon,  already having appeared), with the  additional fact that seven members  of the American guard had been  killed and sixteen wounded. The  discussion with tho president led to  the determination to reply to the  Conger message at once, and accordingly secretary Root and acting  secretary McAdo conferred on the  terms of the reply. The text was  ready by 3 o'clock, and it was forwarded late in the day. It was  announced officially and positively  ��� that this message will not be made  public. It was made plain,  however, - that the message  was sufficiently guarded as not to  further increase the jeopardy of the  United States minister in case the  Chinese have access to the cipher.  As to the terms of the message they  are believed to make plain that the  government will not advise, much  less direct, that Mr. Conger leave  Pekin under Chinese escort since  the minister had advised Washington that this would mean certain  death. Moreover the reply doubtless lets the minister know that  there is an unaccountable error in  the statement of the Chinese government, as conveyed to him  through the tsung li yamen, that  the foreign governments had urged  repeatedly that the ministers be  sent out cf Pekin under suitable  escort.; .'���   ';   '        \7; . .-���'     '7  Brussels, August (10.���The foreign office has received the following   message,   signed    "Decartier"  (E. de Cartier de Marchienne, first  ^secretary of the Belgian legation at  Pekin): '*Shang-Hai, August 10.���  An imperial decree names Li Hung  Chang as.-minister, plenipotentiary  to negotiate peace." The foreign  office has also received from the  Belgian minister at Pekin a dispatch identical with that received  by the French foreign office from  tho French minister at Pekin, M.  Pichon, telling of the attempts  made by the Chinese to secure the  foreign ministers' acceptance of a  Chinese escort to Tien-Tsin;  Washington, August 10���Orders  have been issued for additional teams  to be sent from Manila to China to  increase the available transportation necessary for the movement of  general Chaffee and his army.  These Jieams can be procured much  sooner from Manila than from this  country.  - St. ~ Petersburg,-Ausust- 10.���It  is reported that 12,000 Chinese  troops are marching from the provinces of Hunan and Hu Pei towards  Pekiipand Tien-Tsin.  ST.    PETEHSI5URG,    August   10.���  Official reports say that three  separate Russian columns succeeded  in surrounding a large Chinese  force at Hai Chau, and that seeing  the Russians arriving from all sides,  the Chinese fled in an easterly direction, leaving a . dozen obsolete  guns behind them. The Russians  pursued the Chinese for thirty-five  versts until they were exhausted  and compelled to abandon the  pursuit.      -  MARTIN LEAVES FOR ATLIN  To Settle Alining Disputes,  Victoria, August 10.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���It was announced  by the attorney-general in the legislature today' that justice - Martin  leaves for Atlin district on August  17th as special commissioner to  settle mining disputes in .the same  way as was* done last year., The  need this time is because of the provisional boundary, run' between  Alaska and British Columbia, which-  , leaves the British side some quarter  claims staked ' under the Alaskan  law, and consequently. Martin will  have full-power, to settler any dis-,  "putes arid"1protect"the'first locators  from any unscrupulous jumpers.  Martin will hold full court in  Atlin on-August 20th.'  Joe Martin kicked against' the  provision .that judge Martin's decision was final without appeal.  But it must be remembered that  Martin is a federal judge and altogether outside of politics, so that in  appointing him the government  have made a ^perfectly impartial  choice. " ' '  Tatlow of Vancouver introduced  another bill aimed against Mongolians. It provides for an educational test for immigrants and prohibits, under penalty of $5000, any  one coming into the province to  work or trade or vote, who cannot  write out and sign an , application  to the provincial secretary in some  European language. __  UITY   LOCAL   tfEWS.  Messrs. Ciiffe & Son, of the Sandon Mining Review, are on the  lookout for a sober and reliable  printer with one or two years' experience at the business. There are  many printers in Nelson who answer to that description,, but they  don't relish the idea of exchanging  metropolitan life for a sojourn in  thehills.  Rev. Dr. Spencer- of Brantford,  Ontario, will preach in the Baptist  church tomorrow. In the morning  his subject will be "The Parable of  the Ten Virgins," -the- evening, "Signs of the Times."

Madison Square Garden, New  York, August 10. ���Bob Fitzsim-  mons of Australia, but now an  American citizen, met Gus Ruhlin,  the Akron giant, tonight before the  Twentieth Century Club at Madison Square Garden and won by  knocking the Ohioan down and out  in the sixth round. Fitzsimmons  did the trick cleanly and cleverly.  It was a fierce and bloody battle  while it lasted, and at times it  looked as if Ruhlin would -get the  better of the older man, but Fitz  at the proper time would, cub loose  with his fearful body - blows, which  finally snuffed out the Ohio boxer's ���  light.  ' When the betting opened, here  tonight it was 10 to 8 on the Australian.    Ruhlin will be seconded  by Jim Corbett, Billy Madden and  and Charles Goff.   Al Smith will  hold   the   watch  for Ruhlin  and  Percy.Williams for Fitz.   Fitz will  weigh about 170 pounds and Ruhlin  190.     The    "Australian     will    be  handled   by  Bob Armstrong, Dan  Hickey, George Dawson   and  Jeff  Thorne.     Fitz" .was   seen   at   the  Bartholdi hotel just before he left  his room fdr the * ring.*   Neyei* had  be been more confident.' He said:  "I am in the best-of condition. "I.  feel better than when I met Corbett  at Carson City.   My arm .hurts me  no more than it did before . it was  injured and I am going to win.   I  was never more confident."  .r The  betting  all  along favored  Fitz, many wagers at the rate "of  100 to 80 on Lanky Bob being made.  Tonight, however, at the ringside  there was a flush of Ruhlin money,  which forced the odds to turn in  Ruhlin's favor at the rate of 100 to  00,' This did not last long, however, and by the time the men put  up their hands forthe openinground  they   were   equal   favorites,  even  money being' the rule.    Fitz conceded about 32 pounds to Ruhlin,  and .this' in ��� itself was a" serious  handicap.,   ' -   "  - From the word "go" the. men  started in with hurricane-like force.  ,Both-were wild at timesy~but Fitx-  .was always the quicker ^to steady  himself. Ruhlin clinched a good  deal, and for three or four rounds  was the aggressor. He landed some  hard straight lefts on Fitsimmons'  face and swung his right to the  body and head with fearful force.  Several of these blows staggered  Fitz, but none vof them landed,on  the mark, as Fitz was too shifty.  Fit/, forced Ruhlin to break ground  and in a hot mixup the Ohio man  was always the first to ease up and  take refuge in a clinch. Time and  time again Fitz forced Ruhlin to  the ropes, from which position Ruhlin always got away rather clumsily,  while Fitz was always very quick  in his foot movements. When Ruhlin's nose began to bleed from a  stiff left punch the sight of  the blood seemed to have a  deterrenteffectonhinrand Fitz: was  quick to see this. At the first sign  of weakness on Ruhlin's part, Fitz  began his attack on the body, and  each blow he landed there made  Gus wince with pain. Fitz' handlers  kept urging him to play for the  solar plexus, but Fitz only tried itv  occasionally. In the fourth and  fifth- rounds both men showed  plainly the effects of the stiff/and  rapid -vvprk.they had; done in^ the  preceding rounds- Both were tired  and leg weary, but -Ruhlin showed  up  much the worse of  the two,  Fitz was always the quicker on his  feet at the call of time, but now  and - then during the rounds he  seemed to stand still and glare at  his ;;opponent. Ruhlin at these  times also stood still being evidently  grateful for the chance of breathing which Fitz afforded him. Just  once Fitz touched the floor, when  he slipped down from a clinch at  the end of a round.  In the sixth round Ruhlin was  slow in coming to time, while Fitz  jumped at his man. It was then a  question of xvHp could land a telling  punch, as both men were very much  fatigued. Fitz, always the quickest  on his feet, was able to get around  Ruhlin, and while the latter sent a  straight left for Fitz's head, Bob  side stepped safely and landed on  the body and right to head. With  a volley 'of lefts and rights to the  head and neck and a fearful left on  the'solar plexus Fitz sent Ruhlin in  a heap to the floor. This was the  beginning of the end that soon followed. Ruhlin, after taking nine  seconds of the count, arose to his  feet groggy from the effects of the  solar plexus blow. Fitz knew he  had his man and was ready for him.  As soon as Ruhlin got up, Fitz  rushed, sending two lefts to the  face and then shot his right wibh  fearful foraf-to the point of Ruhlin's  jaw. Ruhlin pitched forward as if  struck with an axe and fell on his  face to the floor, where he was  counted out and had to be taken to  his corner.    *  8:40 p.m.���-The crowd is pouring  in rapidlj' and the attendance now  is about 0,0p0. Terry McGovern  was one of the first in the house.  The South Brooklyn terror was  loath'to say. anything about his  preferences, but he was seen to go  into his pocket and get a 'wad  which he gave to Harris toget'down  on Fitz at the- best odds possible.  Some of the bets * are as follows: J  Ben Rose'placed $400 on Fitz, Ed.  Downs of Bridgeport bet $400 to  $300 that Fitz would win inside of  ten rounds, Billy 'Madden bet $200  on his protege, Jack Franklin of  Pittson, Pa., placed $1000 even on  Ruhlin, three separate sports taking the Fitz end.,   "  The preliminary 'fighters entered  the ring at 8:50/' The bout is between George Monroe of New Yoik  and Billy Ryan "of Brooklyn, ten  rounds at 116 pounds.  ��� 8:50 p. m.���The crowd now numbers about 7000.^ Count Lafayette  of-Paris occupies.a box seat-to the  south of the ring.  The officials of the .evening are:  Referee, Charley^White; timekeeper, Teddy Fble.y;-announcer. Joe  Humphreys*. ,'-,'- i%.'    -.  Tom Sharkey is" seated near the  ringside.

'  '.. 9:09-p. m.--Refer"ee Charlie White  climbs through the ropes, and business has begun.. Monroe outclassed  Ryan in the opening round. Both  landed with right to head and lefts  to body, but'no^harm'was done.  Ryan tired visibly in the second,  and Monroe had the game all, his  own way.*1   ~���i f-���    .  Monroe wasja trifle careless wheft  they came up'-for. the third - round, s) ��  and took a left��� jab full-, in the  mouth as a reminder. . George  knocked his man off his feet with a  right swing to jaw, bub Ryan came  up gamely. Monroe simply played  with Ryan until the bell sounded.  The fourth round showed Ryan  doing much better work. He slugged  George with the right to the jaw  and pounded wind* when they came  to the clinch. Monroe was surprised. The Brooklyn boy rushed  matters and placed Monroe on the  defence entirely..  - Monroe began." jabbing in the  fifth, but with little harm to Ryan,  who came close whenever George  started anything and had the  round cinched.-  - Pictures of the big fight ��� will be  taken by a mutascope company. ���  The sixth round was give and  takerwithThonors even at  KRUCER SAYS NO SURRENDER  And Publishes Fake Stories.  - London, August 11.���According  to the Lorenzo Marquez correspondent of the Daily Express, president  Kruger, in the course of an interview last Wednesday, said that the  report that 'he intended to surrender was without foundation. He  declared that the war would last a  long time yet. "A Boer bulletin,"  continues the correspondent, "announces a big battle between Lydenburg and Middleburg, in which  the British had 500 killed and  wounded' It also announces the  capture by burghers, of Heilbron,  Devillersdorp aud Frankfort."  .  Boer reports via Lorenzo Marquez lately have proved worthy of  little credence. The Pretoria plot  is the theme of many editorials this  morning. All the papers decry the  idea of treating the Boers too  leniently.  - "Examples, and stern examples,"  says the Daily Mail, "are necessary.  Although we may not agree with  Sheridan's maxim "Nothing should  be left to an enemy but, eyes  to weep with," ^yet this was the  conclusion of a not inhuman officer  who thoroughly understood war."  Pretoria, August 10.���-It is said  that lord Methuen has arrested  general Dewet's march. All the  Boers in the field credit a-rumor  circulated by their leaders that lord  Roberts ' is dying. Roberts; how-',  ever, is in excellent health, display-'  ing wonderful energy, and rides  long distances daily.  London, August 11.���It is persistently rumored in Lorenzo Marquez, according to a dispatch to the  Daily Telegraph, dated* yesterday,  that Mr. Steyn had committed  suicide.       INSTRUCTIONS ARE RECEIVED  the bell.  Monroe was shifty in the seventh  and rocked Ryan's noddle with  right and left swings. The Brooklyn boy was plucky and strong,  however, and George's blows seemed  not to hurt much.  In the eighth round a serious  mixup occurred, in which Monroe  showed up to good advantage in  body work and short arm jabs.      -  9:50 p.m.���It was announced that  both Fitz and Ruhlin were in the  house and would appear within five  minutes. Monroe went after his  man in the ninth, but could do  nothing with him.  There ,was=, ai-.fine rally at the  ropes, in which Ryan* succeeded in  keeping inside of Monroe's swings.  .The tenth round, was. in favor of  Ryan, who went right after Moni-oe  and landed lefb to jaw and right to  wind. Referee White declared the  contest a draw.-  9:45 p.m.���When the preliminary  bout was finished every seat in the  house was filled except a vacant  stretch of benches at the west end  of the hall. The announcement at  the request of manager Kennedy  was made at 9:50 that both Fitz  and Ruhlin were in the house and  would appear in the ring in five  minutes.  . When the men came into the  house the odds were 10 to 9 in  favor of Ruhlin.. -t  9:55 p. m.���Even money is the  prevailing rate now. Fitz was  first to make his appearance in the  garden, and he was greeted with  loud applause as he sauntered into  the ring.   As soon as he arrived on  {Continued on Page Four.)  From C. P. E. Headquarters.  A. F. Proctor, C. P. R.. construction engineer, was instructed yesterday to - proceed * with' the improvements of the five mile section  f the road recently acquired from  the Great Northern by the C. P. R.  The plans prepared for" the work  provide for correcting; the alignment, ballasting and other essentials necessary to place /the section  in first class shape and on a par  with the remainder of the Balfour  extension of which it will form a  part1. The company desires the  work to be done expeditiously and  a large'gang of men, probably 150  strong, will be put on with a work  train, operating from the Nelson  end, this having been in mind when  the Crow's Nest switch was connected with the Nelson & Fort  Sheppard track near the Fairview  station. It is reported ' that from  $30,000 to $40,000 will be expended  in improving the road. The situation at Procter is unchanged. Up  to-last-night-the companyhad~sent  no men up the lake to take the  places of those who had refused to  work for the wages offered.  Expedition to Siberia.  Victoria, August 10���An expedition is being formed by captain  Otto Bucholtz, who took the steamer Alpha to Cape Nome early last  spring, to go to the Siberian coast  next spring, he haying"received information of rich beach diggings  there'. The provincial government  announce that they are opposed to  the granting of a charter for a rail;  way" through the^hilcoot pass; as  the country isin dispute between  Canada and tho United States, and  also that the line would parallel the  White Pass railway. During the  naval maneuvers the torpedo boat  destroyer Virago, using three of her  boilers, maintained a speed of thirty  knots. .'  Tired of Military Life.  Halifax, Nova Scotia, August  10.���The Canadian recruits to the  garrison at Halifax to take the  place of the imperial forces seem to  be discontented,,xvibh their lot.  There have. beerf 'seventy-five desertions from the garrison since the  soldiers went into barracks. Among  those who desurted was the baseball  pitcher of the regimental team.  The special reason for deserting is  that they are tired of military'life.  Baseball on Sunday.  The Northport ball team arrives  on tonight's train for the game tomorrow, when they cross bats with  Nelson on the recreation grounds.  The visitors are said to have a well  balanced team .which can play  snappy ball. It is believed that  Olsen will pitch for Northport. If  this is correct the game "will have  an added zest as Olsen has pitched  against Nel3on twice .this season  and was hit freely m both games.  He is undoubtedly a clever southpaw, however, and no one would be  surprised if Nelson had considerable difficulty in locating his curves.  Bob Wellner will probably pitch for  the home team with "Lew Waters  behind the bat. Harry Houston has  a badly sprained hand and is not in  condition to .catch the .game. The  Nelson players ' are putting ��� - up  better ball than has been, the casein recent games, the interval since  the last match haying served to  brace up the nine. v The - management confidently look for a first  class exhibition.       , ?       ,   ���,<���  WHOLESALE BUSINESS FAIR  ' dJ  . 'Ji  LORD MINTO IN THE NORTH  1    Dawson Will be En Fete.  Victoria, August 10.���H. Gilchin,  who is iu charge of the supplies for  the public works ' department in  Yukon, in an interview today said  the telegraph system between Atlin  and the outside world would be  completed and in; operation by  October 1st, and that by the'same  time the line which' * the Dominion  government was building to extend  from Dawson to Fort Cudahy, on  the international boundary line' be-  tween Yukon Territory and Alaska,  would be ready for use. The latter  line will be about 50 miles long.  The system to be constructed in the  Yukon basin will connect with the  -British Columbia system, and the  two will be complementary, making  a complete system throughout the  Yukon basin, and serving the chief  points of the far north. .Wholesale reductions will be made both  ways on the Yukon between Dawson and White Horse.affecting intermediate as well as through- travel,'  as announced by the White Pass  aud Yukon Railway Company, effective immediately on eleven of its  steamers. -The new rates are exactly half of the rates that pre:  vailed up to this time.  Dawson* papers brought:down -by*  the Tees report that elaborate preparations are being made for the  reception of lord and lady Minto at  Dawson. * Commissioner Ogilivie  has planned a trip to creeks and to  Forty-Mile. Major ' Wood of the  Northwest; Mounted" Police, whose  house the governor-general and  party .will occupy at, Dawson, the  major temporarily vacating, will  meet the distinguished party at  White Horse. On their landing at  Dawson the men 'at' the barracks  will fire a salute of 21 guns and a  party of thirty, men will form a  guard of honor. The citizens are  also preparing a program for the  reception of the'party.      '  Hicks-Beach's Peculiar Methods.  London, August 10.���The weekly,  papers and the financial organs  follow the dailies in severe comment upon the peculiar methods of  the chancellor of the exchequer, sir  Michael Hicks-Beach, in issuing the  exchequer bonds, but' they do not  fail to recognize the value of the  services which American bankers  and the treasury have rendered  Great Britain of late by helping  the money markets during a long  trying period, the period of the  stoppage of good reports from  South Africa. They also recognize  the high importance of the new  departure "which promises to  place New York at the head  of the world's money market,  unless, which is not regarded as  likely,- Mr. Bryan should be elected  to the presidency, which, it is be1  lieved, would cause considerable  disturbance in tbe United States.  The large American subscription is  the first signal proof yet vouchsafed that New York has become a  great international investment  market. New York has previously  loaned to Canada and Russia, but  this is the first time it has taken  the leading part in an issue by a  European government of the highest credit.  Bad Floods in Australia.  Victoria, August 10���News from  Australia, brought by the steamer  Aorangi, reports terrible floods in  New South Wales during July.

It forms a partm.  of the British section iri the Palais^H)  des Forets, and as-a collective ex-^f  hibit greatly   excels  that Tof^ ariy^'i  other country, both as regards the'^  variety of material shown and ai*-^  rangement of the specimens!,   The y  space   allotted  to   Canada' in the7 ���  forestry building ,was not large��� J",'  about   1000   square   feet^and   it/f,  could not be divided in any 'way' -?  that would allow.eauh province to _"*  make a separate   exhibit,   as was  done at-Chicago- in-lSOSr-Of^the^4  121. Canadian forest trees 86 are ���-  shown    in    one    form    or    an-    |  other, those not represented being  either of no economic value or occurring in such small quantities in  Canada that they could not be included   in   a   commercial   exhibit.  Nova Scotia, Now Brunswick and  Ontario as; provinces,   contributed  nothing.      The  largest arid most  complete provincial   exhibit cariae  from British Columbia.   It includes  large sections of the principal trees  growing  in   that    province,  and*  nearly 200 pieces of square timber,  deals, boards, flooring, wainscoting,  etc., as well as tanbark, shingles  and   other articles of less importance.   The section of the Douglas  fir sent from that province occupies  an important place in the centre of  the Canadian exhibit and, attracts  much attention.     It is   not quite  eight feet in diameter, but is the  largest section shown at the exposition.  A Panic Occurred.  Paris, August 10.���A special dispatch from Rome says a panic occurred during the progress of the  funeral procession of king Humbert.  The crowd, it is asserted, broke  through the lino of troops and many  women and children were trampled  under foot, and sixty people were  wounded and taken to the hospitals.  During the excitement, it is further'  stated, the Italian princes and for- ���'  eign representatives surrounded  king Victor Emanuel, and king  Nicholas of Montenegro, the, new  king's father-in-law, drew his sabre  and the generals present followed  suit. The king of Italy remained  calm and unexcited.  ������*���*���  ,���������-.  _- ��  .&&��_*-'if l^$& _______ .'&������.-'  ���3  THE TRIBUSrE: ITELSOlsr B.

A fight is now  on between the federal government  and the Canadian Pacific over the  Intercolonial management and Canada's great state-aided railway  threatens to sidetrack the Canadian  terminus in favor of a United States  port if its demands are not complied  with. It is in- this connection the  Toronto World,suggests that the  federal government, meet the Canadian Pacific threat by extending the  Intercolonial from Montreal to Col-  lingwood, and the,.Detroit river,  which would enable it to.compete  with the Canadian Pacific as far  west as Manitoba. This should be  a popular move. It would be another step in: the ', direction, -of a  state-owned railway which- might  eventually girdle the Dominion from  the Atlanticto the Pacific.

'  I'll  Bay Stes  In advocating the extension; of  the t Intercolonial railway, from  Montreal  through the province of  * Ontario, the Toronto World pays a  - great compliment   to the present  ,    minister of railways.   It is many  years since a Conservative journal  has had the courage to suggest anything, in-the*-way of extending ithe  Intercolonial   system.    What has  produced the change ?   Is it due to  the altered policy, of operating .the  ���government road in its-own inter-  7-"ests, rather thari'in ��� the interests of.  :'the > Canadian ��� Paieifi a. Railway.

I(��;r -should  * canse the people of -fche*-Bominibn no  uneasiness* that the officials of the  Canadian Pacific railway  are not,  satisfied with the manner in which  the* government road is managed.

It was  arranged that the; capture and killing should:take.*place onithe evening of Tuesday last. .Intense indignation   prevails   throughout the  British army and the general  opinion is that the leniency of  the British invited such a  conspiracy. It is considered that*  no measure for the repression  of such plots can be too strong.  The plot included the recapture of  Pretoiia, and an attempt to induce  the burghers to rise en masse. A  number of suspected accomplices of  the conspirators have been con-,  ducted across the border. The  British authorities are awakening  to the danger of allowing Boer  sympathizers to remain in Pretoria,  and the issue of passes to the burghers has been stopped.  Government Contracts.  Ottawa, August 10.���The contract for the construction of the  new drill hall at Windsor, Ontario,  has been awarded to Messrs. Sullivan & Laughlin, and the contract  for the Picton, Ontario, post office  goes to Robert Cameron. The contractors in each caso will have to.  abide by the fair wage resolution  which compels payment of the  current rate of wages and will not  permit of non-residents of Canada  being employed. As contractors  will have to pay the rate of wages  in the district there would . be" no  interest in their looking for cheaper  , labor elsewhere, as was customary  under the late government.

Akers, ex-foreman of the Exchequer  mine, and at one time superintendent of the Dandy. The letter  was written from Bluff Ciby,  Alaska, and is as follows :  Dear Friend Jack.���I got a letter  from Johnnie yesterday, and am  glad to know that you have decided not to come here. I have not  been very successful as yet in  getting hold of mining property.  This boom at Nome is a bubble, and  tho-bubble is now on the point of  bursting. I got into Nome on June  12 th, bought a boat and outfit and  went out prospecting in about three  days; with Cunningham for a part-  . ner. We started up * the Solomon  river. It was a hard job, and  - Ernest got cold feet, so we had .to  turn back and come here. Everything is located aud jumped from  one to a dozen times.  When we got here I went on the.  tundra, or what they call the highway, 120 feet back -from the tide,  . and sunk a hole where every ,one  else was sinking, by an old Indian  house, going down from the grass  roots through 17 feet of rock to bedrock. We struck two feet of pay  . diit, running from thirty cents "to  two dollars and a half to ihe pan.  It was the richest. ground I ever  saw, and ia 30 days I could have  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on >Skaffuay, V. S.,  Atlin, B. C, and DawBtm City, N. W. T.  taken out a-*small fortune, but it  was,not to be. We just, got the  bottom of lthe shaft * cleaned up,  getting $125 out of about two' feet  square, when a company of soldiers  landed and ran us oif at the point  of the bayonet. The captain gave  us a cut-and-dried trial the next  day, decided that we had no right  .there, and put soldiers to guard the  property. Some of the boys who  ���went, back to work were' arrested  and sent to Nome for trial. I have  not heard how they were coming  out, but the military still hold the  ground.  I got another partner and started out prospecting again. We were  caught in a heavy wind storm and  blown into Galvin bay. The boat,  which went on the rocks, was badly  damaged, but we managed to save  our outfit. We recovered our boat  on a sandy beach, and while my  partner was fixing her up I came  on here afoot or "mushed" in, as  they call it here, fifty miles overland to see about a reported rich  strike. ��� The rich strike which was  reported is a bubble, too, like Nome,  and now I am resting up, before  going back to my partner and .the  boat. On coming over I saw some  good ground which was not properly located, so when I go back I will  jump it.  The" gold is here all right, but  every thing is blocked up in such a  way that it is next to impossible to  get any ground without getting a  law suit with it. The beach, which  was at first very rich, is now worked out, and thousands of people are  wandering around apparently without any object. I hear that nearly  2000 persons have applied to the  government for passages out, being  unable to pay their'-way;  - One man here has a small gasoline engine and a piimp, two lengths  of sluice,boxes and a seventy-five  dollar amalgamator working on the  beach.

I have not been able to get.-anything as yet, but I "will stay with it  until fall, and if there is anything  in sight I will stay here this winter  and hold it down until you and  Johnnie_come_up_in_the_spring.^-If-  I can.only,get the-proper piece, of  ground we will all be rich, for .the  gold is here,, but it is mostly hogged  up, and it is a hard game "mushing"  over this country-without a partner whom you can depend.upon.  The season has been dry so far,  therefore.there has been no sluicing  on the creeks. All the gold taken  out has-been with rockers. Those  coming here depending on wages  have beeu badly left.  Smallpox has broken out at Nome.  There are more disappointed people  at present in this country than any  other place in the world. But, let  them go; I am in good health, with  plenty of money, to-carry me over  the winter or go,out, as circumstances may decide, so I will keep  scratching and will maybe get there  after all.  A few lines from you, addressed  to Nome, would-be very acceptable.  Cunningham is working away, on  the beach, doing .very badly, and  not even making-wages. > I'offered  him a passage out by-way of'encouragement. --'He is,very badly  disappointed.  I have enjoyed myself immensely  since starting out, and it is great  fun to see the tenderfeet going wild  around here. ��� They wouldn't know  gold if they saw it.

Jim Corbett, one of Ruhlin's  seconds, while Fitz was putting on  his gloves, entered with a belt of  the American flag. Ruhlin entered  the ring dressed in nothing but a  breech cloth. As soon as he arrived on the platform with his  seconds he. walked around and  looked at the gloves, walked over  to his corner and watched Fitz  carefully. The bell at this time  was announcing the fight.  When Fitz stripped it was seen  that he wore flesh-colored trunks.  Fitz occupies the southwest corner  of the ring. Ruhlin was in the  northwest angle. While Ruhlin  strips in great condition both men  wear bandages on their hands.  While the men were adjusting  their mits, the announcer spoke of  John L.
